  • Compliance is Essential: Companies must prioritize compliance to safeguard their ability to operate internationally and avoid severe penalties.

  • Executive Support is Crucial: Effective compliance programs require strong support from the executive team, including adequate resources and a culture of compliance.

  • Strategic Advantage: Investing in compliance can enhance a company’s reputation, build trust, and open new global opportunities.

  • Proactive vs. Reactive: Waiting for something to go wrong before addressing compliance can lead to catastrophic consequences.
